This technique had revolutionized the standard for labia minora reduction and is becoming more widely used, primarily by plastic surgeons. The Alter V or Wedge technique restores normal life to women who have had unsuccessful labiaplasties.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Developing a proven surgical technique for labia minora reduction (labioplasty, inner vaginal lip reduction) referred to as the Alter “V or “Wedge” labiaplasty technique, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Gary Alter, MD has utilized this surgical procedure on women with labia abnormalities, either congenital or due to trauma, aging, or childbirth, with tremendous results. In December of 2008, Dr. Alter’s ground-breaking seminal work with his labiaplasty technique was published in the world’s most prestigious plastic surgery journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Volume 122 – Number 6: Aesthetic Labia Minora and Clitoral Hood Reduction Using Extended Central Wedge Resection.
Dr. Alter’s life-changing female genital surgical practices and procedures continue to resonate within the community of his medical peers – again recently being published in the prestigious journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons June 2011, Volume 127 – Issue 6: Labia Minora Reconstruction Using Clitoral Hood Flaps, Wedge Excisions, and YV Advancement Flaps. This recently published work is the first and only published paper dealing with new techniques to reconstruct a wide range of labia abnormalities resulting from unsuccessful labiaplasties performed by practitioners not utilizing the “Alter Wedge” technique.
One of the rare doctors with dual Board Certification in Urology and Plastic Surgery, Dr. Alter had this to say about the labia minora technique he has pioneered “This technique had revolutionized the standard for labia minora reduction and is becoming more widely used, primarily by plastic surgeons. The newest techniques help restore normal life to women who have had unsuccessful labiaplasties by older, less precise techniques. My NYC and Beverly Hills labiaplasty (labia minora) patients have had their expectations exceeded and have found my labiaplasty technique to dramatically improve the quality of their lives.”
Dr. Gary Alter gained national and international recognition for his extraordinary surgical techniques on the hit E! Entertainment Television show, Dr. 90210 which ran for six seasons and is now in syndication in more than 100 countries. With successful Plastic Surgery practices in Manhattan, New York and Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Alter has patients from all over the world seeking out his surgical expertise and currently treats patients at UCLA Medical Center, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Olympia Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.
Additionally, Dr. Alter is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at UCLA School of Medicine, and the co-editor of Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery of the External Genitalia – a major medical textbook published by W.B. Saunders Co., and the first book of its kind in 25 years.
A graduate of the UCLA School of Medicine, Dr. Alter did his residency in Urology at both UCLA and the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. The Board Certified Plastic Surgeon completed his residency in Plastic Surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, followed by a fellowship in Genitourinary Reconstruction and Plastic Surgery at the Eastern Virginia Graduate School of Medicine.
